The Speyside Way

SKU: 9781898481270 Categories: ,


The Speyside Way is one of Scotland’s Great Trails. It runs for 80 miles (128 km) from the fishing port of Buckie to Aviemore in the foothills of the Cairngorms. Following the lovely valley of the River Spey, you walk through countryside rich in malt whisky and wildlife, along riverside paths, railway trackbed and forest and moorland tracks.

The second edition was fully revised, with mapping from Footprint in six panels, updated plans of villages along the Way, including a fresh Grantown plan and directions from the terminus in Buckie. In 2016 we released the revised version of this essential trail guide, with fresh photos, new mapping and many other updates. These included documenting the 6.5-mile route extension to Kincraig, which opened in 2015, and 11-mile Badenoch Way.

the Way step-by-step, with summaries of distance, terrain and refreshments
